The Little Mermaid is Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved and well-known fairy tale, which is why it’s NOT the story our friend, Dolan, is going to tell you today. No, he’s going to tell you the story about a Little Rain Cloud who falls in love with a human. They are not the same story at all, he swears. Julia Izumi’s brilliant play is a collision of multiple narratives, framed as a sort-of retelling of The Little Mermaid that erupts into a voyage through Hans Christian Andersen’s tempestuous real-life relationships. Brimming with heartfelt candor, Sometimes the Rain, Sometimes the Sea is a deep-sea dive into what love really looks like.
